ObjectRocket Launches MongoDB Database as a Service
ObjectRocket announced a new database as a service offering based on MongoDB.ObjectRocket has announced the launch of its easy-to-use, scalable MongoDB database as a service (DBaaS). The company built its MongoDB cloud service from the ground up. Indeed, unlike most MongoDB services built on top of shared infrastructure, ObjectRocket's platform is specifically architected to provide a fast, predictable MongoDB environment. ObjectRocket provides 24/7 customer support for the solution. ObjectRocket officials said each instance is backed by solid-state disk for massive I/O, is inherently sharded and resides on multiple redundant pieces of infrastructure. Databases are replicated and optionally exist in multiple geo-diverse data centers. ObjectRocket also leverages Amazon Web Services (AWS) Direct Connect to provide low latency and free bandwidth to AWS customers. In addition to providing MongoDB hosting, ObjectRocket's added software features offer customers ways to get more value out of their MongoDB environment. ObjectRocket's unique software features include RocketScale for easy scaling at a moment's notice; QueryGuard for automatic detection of long-running queries; and RocketSecure, which adds the security of encrypted connections and IP-based access control.
"ObjectRocket was built by engineers for engineers," Chris Lalonde, CEO and co-founder of ObjectRocket, said in a statement. "We knew someone needed to start solving the hard problems of MongoDB as a service, so we built the platform that we would want to use. We've wrapped world-class support around this platform, creating an easy-to-use, consistently fast and scalable MongoDB environment."
